The IECEx Scheme is a programme intended to facilitate international trade in equipment and services for use in explosive atmospheres, while maintaining the required levels of safety. As many countries operate under different standards, products often require re-testing and re-certification to meet the standards appropriate to that country. IECEx approval is an acceptable alternative to local explosive atmosphere certification within the partner countries and therefore helps reduce the burden of re-test / certification.
OptoSniff has been granted IECEx approval for use in explosive atmospheres. A copy of the certificate of conformity and further information about the scheme can be found below.
